Cut Wire Shots

Precision Drawell offers cut wire shots for use in shot peening and abrasive blast applications. Cut wire shot is available as conditioned cut wire and as-cut wire. Conditioned cut wire is finished to remove the sharp edges that remain after the wire is cut so that peening does not damage the surface of the part.

As-cut wire has the sharp edges and is used for cleaning and abrasive processes.

BENEFITS OF CUT WIRE SHOT ARE

  • Consistent, precise finish due to the uniform size and weight of the cut wire shot.
  • Faster cleaning of parts, with little dust.
  • Smooth, polished finished surfaces.
  • Multiple cycle use due to the high wear resistance of shot.

Precision Drawell offers cut wire shot manufactured from high quality wire that meets industry standards, including SEA J441. Cut wire is available in stainless steel alloys, carbon steel alloys, aluminum, zinc and copper. Type I, Type II and Type III conditioned wire is available.
